According to a video post on the game’s Kickstarter page, Shenmue III has been delayed till late 2018.
Project director Yu Suzuki explains, “By utilising new technologies, we have been able to discover new possibilities and expressions. In many ways, the game has become bigger and more beautiful than I initially expected. We do, however, need more time to deliver the game to you.”
Game delays related to improving the player’s experience is something we can all agree upon as being a good thing.
Rumor has it a Shenmue HD remaster is on the way this year. This isn’t a bad idea as this would give gamers new to the franchise the ability to play through the original two games to prepare for Shenmue III in 2018.
